Taiwan is famous for it's high tech computer technology, bicycles, fragrant tofu, rivers of scooters, delicious street food, and of course, tea. Today's episode is a bit of a soundscape as we spend a portion of the afternoon drinking and discussing tea. Unlike your Western coffeeshop where you pop in for a beverage to go, or you grab a drink and sit with a couple of friends or work on your computer, a Taiwanese teashop has time unfolding at a completely different pace. And it is about dipping not only into something delicious in a cup, it's about connecting with your community and making new friends. Listen as my friend Pia and I imbibe tea and tea culture in a way that you only find in Taiwan.
